FoodShare Greenville connects families and communities to fresh fruits and vegetables through bi-weekly fresh food boxes, currently distributed to an average of 900 families every other week. The We Raise grant will help fund FoodShare Greenville’s FoodRX program and enable them to significantly expand the FoodRX program to equip healthcare and community partners with vouchers to prescribe healthy food boxes as preventative medicine to residents experiencing food insecurity and lead health education programming for FoodShare Greenville customers.
